Tues – 11/20: Our actions help take back the House. We can stop gun shows here too.

October 1st marked the one-year anniversary of the Las Vegas mass shooting, where 59 innocent people were murdered, and more than 500 others were injured. This November 7th, some of the survivors went through the same trauma again at our popular dance spot, the Borderline. 12 people died, including an armed law enforcement officer. 

We are beyond “thoughts and prayers” over gun violence.

We have learned from this last election, that regular citizens, with both individual and group actions, can profoundly change this world for the better.

Here is what you can do right now and this is what we can do together.

Action #1 – Sign and share this petition

Take an action TODAY to end the proliferation of guns via the gun shows at the Ventura County Fairgrounds and our state profiting off of gun and ammunition sales. Help end the CROSSROADS of THE WEST (COTW) contract with Ventura County . (See “Background” below regarding some highly problematic issues with this promoter.)

Mon – Oct. 1: 1st anniversary of the Las Vegas Massacre. We are beyond “T&P” now. This is what you can do.

Today, October 1st, marks the one-year anniversary of the Las Vegas mass shooting, where 59 innocent people were murdered, and more than 500 others were injured by shooter Stephen Paddock. 

Aside from thoughts and prayers for the trauma and tragedy of these families, we can take local action TODAY to end the proliferation of guns via the gun shows at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. This is our last chance to end the CROSSROADS of THE WEST (COTW) contract with Ventura County before they are renewed. (See “Background” below regarding some highly problematic issues with this promoter.)

Let’s turn our anger into action:
